It's like birth prep classes...but for postpartum!
Why Postpartum Care Is Essential
Healthy parents/caregivers = healthy babies.
This is shown in research - a well cared for baby means the mother must also be well cared for.
However, we have a problem in our society.
Despite the fact that the World Health Organization recognizes that the postpartum period (the first six weeks after birth) as a critical phase in the lives of mothers and newborn babies...it is the most neglected period for the provision of quality care.
Future health outcomes for both baby and mom are influenced by the first weeks after birth as well. Emotional and physical depletion and burn out that develop in postpartum can persist unresolved for years afterwards.
"The first 42 days after birth set the stage for her next 42 years."
- Ysha Oaks, Ayurveda practitioner and educator
At least 1:5 mothers experience anxiety or depression after the birth of a baby.
Preliminary data suggests significantly higher rates of depression and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At least 1:10 dads report experiencing anxiety or depression after welcoming a baby (that jumps up to 1:2 with a partner experiencing depression)
The leading cause of maternal death in Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand is suicide.
Having the opportunity to rest and heal properly after birth allows for better emotional health, physical health, better bonding with baby, better breastfeeding outcomes and satisfaction with mothering.
Mothers need time and space to get to know their baby, fall in love and establish breastfeeding. Forming a relationship takes time, especially with a non-verbal newborn!
Having a clear and defined plan for postpartum support results in less stress for the family, allows for an easier transition into the addition of another baby, less relationship stress between partners and helps to preserve and protect relationships with your older children.
You don't get a do over. You don't get this special time back again.
Proper postpartum support heavily influences the type of memories that you'll have looking back on this time.
Hi, I'm Amy Marshall
I am a registered dietitian turned postpartum doula.
But I'm not your average postpartum doula!
I am a mother to two beautiful children and have found my motherhood journey to be the most intensely transformative time of my life.
I didn't find myself in postpartum work because everything went easy and smooth for me. I had a very challenging first postpartum but I created a peaceful and transformative experience with my second baby.
Now I use the wisdom of generations of women around the world, back it up with scientific research and use mindset coaching, to help guide mothers and parents from a place of overwhelm and stress...to support, confidence and happiness.
Poor Plan = Poor Support
I wish it wasn't the case, however collectively as a society, we have forgotten how to support young families.
If you don't have a postpartum plan set up ahead of your birth, chances are not in your favour that you will have the type of support that you need. (The stats speak for themselves on that)
Not having a postpartum plan means:
- Everything will continue to fall onto your plate.
- You will not be able to rest and recover as you need.
- You may be stressed and not your best self with your children.
- You may feel disconnected and irritable with your partner.
- You may not heal well emotionally or physically after birth.
- You may find yourself not bonded well with your baby.
The Postpartum Peace Method guides you to create your own unique and individual postpartum plan so you have the support you need set up ahead of time.

Module For Dads/Non-Birthing Partners
A special module developed specifically for fathers/non-birthing parents so they can better support the family by understanding the needs of the mother/birthing parent and their own needs.
Mothers often struggle to communicate their needs or fully communicate what she needs to help with.
Dads sometimes feel unclear around how to support their partner - especially if mom is breastfeeding and during the night.
Dads have needs too - and if their needs are unmet, they are less able to care for the support other members of the family.
Father experience rates of paternal postpartum depression at a rate of at least 1:10 which rises dramatically if their partner is struggling with their mental health.
This module facilitates important conversations and dialog between partners.

Carly - Mom of two
The program help me work through my mental blocks that stopped me from asking for help. It helped me feel like I am worthy of support.
It also helped me work on my urges to always be doing things and to enjoying the moments with my children.
I liked the journal exercises around creating a vision and intentions for this postpartum.
I found so much support and meeting other mothers who were going through a similar experience and hearing how they handle their postpartum. It was a very powerful and moving experience to hear all of their stories. It takes a village.
Amy’s gentle and supportive ways to challenge my way of thinking and the fact that she’s has gone through this as well, helped me to let go and open up to her.
Geneviève - Mom of two
What I found most helpful in the program was the support I received from other parents.
I loved the online format of the program (especially during COVID times) and the guided exercises that Amy created in the program that I could complete at my own pace.
The deep topics required time and compassion towards myself and this journey. Some of the best advice and strategies to optimize my post-partum recovery came from this group of lovely people.
I found the support to make this second experience a more profound and positive one. This was the best financial investment I made in the pregnancy and for myself. I would do it again and I will be recommending this program to other parents.
Alexis - Mom of two
The program help me put my needs as top priority and rest compared with my last two babies.
